Bobarino’s Outdoor Dining Area with Vertical Gardens

Bobarino’s is a popular restaurant in downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.  From spring to fall, planted walls surround diners enjoying an escape from the busy streets below.

The green walls are beyond beautiful; they are also functional.  The culinary staff at The B.O.B. grows herbs and greens in their living walls to supplement their menu with ultra-fresh produce.  Patron favorites include Pizza Margherita and Mojitos made with fresh basil and mint harvested from the LiveWall planters.

On the decks that receive less sunlight, brightly colored annuals such as Coleus and SunPatiens enliven the space.
